As modern society continues to be affected by wealth inequality and cycles of boom and bust, it’s as important as ever to understand the origins of financial disaster and the policies, practices, and people who bring them on. The Lords of Creation is a fascinating story of bankers, railroad tycoons, steel magnates, speculators, scoundrels, and robber barons. It is a tale of innovation and shocking exploitation—and a sobering reminder that history can indeed repeat itself.
Praise for The Lords of Creation
“A diligent and perceptive reporter. So much of what he has to say is almost eerie to read [today].”
“A grand job—good reading, and a challenge to sound thinking. A thoughtful and stimulating book, which shows careful research into facts and human motives, a thoughtful viewing of cause and effect, and a constructive approach to controversial subjects.”
